Thrombin-Antithrombin (TAT) Complex is a parameter of coagulation and fibrinolysis. The Thrombin-Antithrombin Complex keeps clotting in check. Deficiencies may aid in understanding hypercoagulable states. Elevated concentrations have been associated with vascular complications associated with diabetes.

pipette, remove plasma, taking care to avoid the WBC/platelet buffy
